Swatches & Stuff - October 2015 + GIVEAWAY

Hi friends,

I am back with another episode of Swatches & Stuff and as promised, a HUGE giveaway! (Scroll down to the end to enter the giveaway)

This is the companion video to this makeup and skin care review:

       


Products I have reviewed this month:

Yves Rocher Anti Age Global - Skin Care Line

In 6 days*, visibly regenerate your skin appearance with 4G Plant Source Cells. The Anti-Age Global line fight the key signs of aging: hydration, wrinkles, firmness, density, radiance, regeneration, dark circles and under eye bag... for skin that appears visibly younger. Used daily this anti-aging skincare is targeted to women over 40. It can be used as a cure for women in their thirties. (From YR Website).

1 . Yves Rocher - Anti - Age Global - Serum 


Anti Age GLobal Serum
I like this serum as much as I liked their previous one (Elixir 7.9). This is very fluid, yet absorbs well and provides almost immediate results. You will feel your skin will appear plumped and hydrated with just one application. I would say it is a miracle worker but then again, I think I just love serums a bit too much. If you have aging, sagging skin, this one is definitely for you! If you are starting to see signs of aging, you know the ones, the fine wrinkles along the side of your cheeks etc. You might want to stop time and start this treatment ASAP!  This is part of YR's Intensive Treatment line - for skins in need of a perk or aging skin. ($75).











 


2. Yves Rocher - Anti -Age Global - Day Cream
3. Yves Rocher - Anti - Age Global - Night Cream 


Day Cream

Night Cream
These two are packed with the same ingredients you will find in the serum mentioned above, namely centaurea cyanus flower wate,  butyrospermum parkii (shea) butt, pyrus malus (apple) fruit extract, aphloia theiformis leaf extracter and panax ginseng root extract.

I find these two creams to suit my combination skin very well. I would say that what I like the best about them is that they do not leave an oily film on my skin and do not clog my pores. In fact, this is the finest my pores have been in the long time and a lot of YouTube subscribers have commented on my skins these past few weeks. I really cannot add anything more other than it works! (Day $60.12  Night $53.14).



4. Yves Rocher - Anti- Age Global Eye Treatment:

Anti Age Global - Eye Care
http://amzn.to/1jVDhDK
This is a good eye treatment - it comes with an unconventional applicator (a slanted wand) you use instead of your fingers as a way to minimize skin pulling during application. The cold sensation tip also provides relief for puffy, tired eyes. I like this one a lot, it seems to suits my eyes well and I dare say that my crow's feet are not as visible as they use to. In fact, if I skip one treatment (on that one night I am just too tired to do anything about my skin) I will notice the difference. Out of all 4 products in the line, I would recommend either the serum or this eye treatment. ($49.95).









5. Maybeline - Cover Tattoo - Eye Shadow Pigment in Pink Rebel

Color Tattoo in Pink Rebel

This loose eye shadow delivers a serious amount of WOW! Seriously, this is hyper pigmented and also hyper shimmery. If you are into mattes these days, this one is not for you. However, if you are looking for an amazing amount of pigment, for your eyes to simply pop with color and light...RUN to the store (or click here) for this is an amazing pink which will turn lavender and deep purple in different lights and angles. I fell in love, I am going to try more colors. So there! ($3.99). 






6. Ulta - Legendary Lengths Mascara

Legendary Lengths Mascara

 This is a good run of the mill mascara that does not clump and though it will not give you absurdly long lashes, it will give you a good coverage and believable lashes. It's only $10 at Ulta and since this is the first time I try an Ulta Brand, I am now considering checking out other products from their store brand as this was did not disappoint! ($10).












 



7. Coastal Scents - Revealed 3 Palette
Revealed 3 Palette

I have been using this palette every single day for the past two weeks and cannot rave about it enough. Beautiful pigments, great stay on, easy application (though some fallout) - I find it to be very versatile in that you can create a variety of looks from day to night without much fussing around. Right now it is pretty much all I need - an easy to use, sleek to carry and inexpensive palette ($14.95).
Just an FYI - The Revealed Palettes by Coastal Scents are their version of the Naked Palettes by Urban Decay. Only you get 20 shadows instead of 10 and for a fraction of the cost!





 

I have reviewed all 3 revealed palettes in a previous video, you can watch it here:
